Habitat for Stupidity

“What is the White House, Alex?” Remember, people: 1/20/09.

Okay. Here are a few gems from another favorite site… DubyaSpeak.com:

“‘I would like to see Habitat For Humanity come down here.’
— As reported on CNN, Dubya’s assessment of who should be helping those affected by the tornado that hit the town of Americus, Georgia. Apparently Dubya didn’t know that Habitat for Humanity is based in Americus. Read more about this incident. Americus, Georgia, Mar. 3, 2007

‘You know, it’s interesting to come back down here to the Gulf Coast. I tried to think back about what it was like the first time I came after the storm hit. And I guess the — my most vivid recollection is the piles of rubble, literally debris stacked upon debris. It was — it’s hard to believe then that I would be — I had faith that I’d be able to come to a home, but I had trouble visualizing. And then I kept coming down and I watched the improvement, because of the hard work of the local citizens, people like the Mayor here and the Governor, who set a vision that was a hopeful vision. The federal government’s role has been to write checks. The Governor’s role and the Mayor’s role is help to expedite the federal money to the local folks. And today, we are able to sit in a homeowner — the word is home. Again, one of the things I like to say is, when somebody walks in, welcome to my home. And it has a special ring to it here in the Gulf Coast, because there was a time when their home was totally destroyed. ‘

‘I’m a strong proponent of the restoration of the wetlands, for a lot of reasons. There’s a practical reason, though, when it comes to hurricanes. The stronger the wetlands, the more likely the damage of the hurricane.’
— In a rare admission that Dubya said the opposite of what makes sense, they added a “[sic]” mark to the official White House transcript of this passage. New Orleans, Louisiana, Mar. 1, 2007″
